a On the 3rd of this month, the Local Health Unit of Baixo Alentejo (ULSBA) welcomed 28 trainee doctors who began their general and specialist training at José Joaquim Fernandes Hospital and at ULSBA Health Centres.
The access of internists enhances the dynamism of clinical services and creates the possibility of establishing physicians in the region, the much-needed human resources.
Of the 28 physicians, seven are for specialized training, in the specialties of intensive care (2), psychiatry (1), pediatrics (1) and general medicine and family medicine (3) and 21 are for general training (formerly joint general).
In a statement sent to our editorial office, the hospital’s director of medical training, Dr. Vera Guerrero, said, “Expectations for the arrival of new professionals are always high, bringing renewed hope each year.”
The welcome session was attended by service directors, whose “experience is an advantage in learning for new interns,” and highlighted ULSBA’s clinical director, Jose Anibal Soares.
Referring to the current situation we are experiencing, José Anibal Soares reminded the newcomers that, as health professionals, they “have a greater responsibility to establish their own safe routines, respecting, at all times, the security measures in the relationship with colleagues, patients and other professionals , in strict compliance with the moral and legal duties of their profession, on the basis of respect, education, and, above all, humility.”
The Clinical Director ended his intervention by asking the interns to “appreciate the profession and enjoy this learning period, and appeal to everyone to devote themselves to the health of patients”.
